The Grove is set in wonderful grounds and well worth a stroll after lunch. But we were there to eat and the choice of the buffet is just eye watering. Reception was good and friendly and shown to table straightaway, Although buffet staff on hand to take away plates and replace cutlery as you went through the course. Meats were... More

Ate at The Glasshouse last Thursday and cant wait to go back. The service as you first step through the door is excellent and this follows through into the Restaurant. The waiting staff are attentive and polite. The choice and quality of food are exceptional and I can see why they are always busy. As it was dark we were... More

All we can think is that any positive review must be paid for as anyone expecting a 5 star hotel experience, albeit in the Glasshouse buffet, would be met by a 2 star experience and even less for the manager. Don't bother complaining about the cramped seating... not being able to move about without knocking into other diners... queuing for... More

We (my wife and I and 9 year old son) went on New Year's Eve. It was expensive but the food and service were superb. We all have different tastes and were all happy - you would be amazed how much chocolate fountain a 9 year old can consume after sushi, duck wrap, and roast beef. New Year's Eve was... More

I come here for every special occasion, I even find myself thinking up excuses to go. It is my favourite place to eat....there is so much selection it keeps everyone happy. It is food from all over the globe done unbelievably well, almost fine dining standard but in a buffet form...what's not to like! I always over fill myself and... More

Opting to take a client for lunch here in December, we were initially 'Wow'ed by the entrance to The Grove and everything about it. The Glasshouse did not disappoint. The buffet was fabulous with a huge variety of food - all top quality and extremely tasty. We even opted to try the Indian range - which, outside of an Indian... More

I booked this restaurant for a Christmas lunch, I thought the sound of a 'Luxury Buffet' sounded really nice and when I saw the menu showing what was on offer, I was sceptical as to whether a restaurant could really come up with all the food on offer to the standard they were proclaiming. I need not have worried. This... More

I love The Glasshouse at the Grove and have been many times over the last five years but have always been a bit disapointed with the desserts. This year however it seems that they have added many desserts to the menu, there were so many delicious ones to choose from I had a plate full! The food is always amazing,... More
